of these sort of insane gerryman dered districts. democrats running for the u.s. house of representatives received more votes overall on tuesday night than republicans running but republicans very much held their seat in part because in 2010, elections have consequences, you have gerrymandering and the way we get that on the agenda. >> that has to be i think a state level thing. iowa does the total nonpartisan legislative. in california you had the new system. the democrats are going to make gains in california or could make gains in california. that's something that has to come in on a state level. pennsylvania is a perfect example. states that obama won by five points. i think the delegation of pennsylvania will be like 13/5 republican coming out. >> i'm sorry, it brings it back to the fact that all politics are local. if i ever learned anything before, i've learned that about this presidency and how it's not just one man that can do things. we have to really pay attention. >> yes. >> people don't. >> i think our chances of getting universal registration, same day voter registration are

when it comes to the number of women in elected office. 17 women currently serve as u.s. senators. 73 out of 435 is the number of women who are members of the u.s. house of representatives. in total, that means that roughly 17% of the 535 seats in the 112th congress are occupied by women. if women want to change that balance, they're going to have to run for office. this year 18 women are run for the senate. that's breaking the record of 14 set in 2010. on the house said, 163 women could win seats. the most since 2004 when 141 women made bids. so, could this be the new year of the woman? is that possible? >> again, i think this is another hidden blessing of 2010. i think when women -- i know my daughter viewed the obsession, almost the obsession of women's health, particularly a lot of young women up and so did the sandra floouk situation where we're see that just men, all of these men telling women what to do and telling women how to live their lives and what's best for them and what rape really is. i think it did wake a lot of women up. question is, will women vote for women. that's
